My Old School District In the News

For banning grills:

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Arlington school district has expanded its dress codes to include bans on mouth jewelry known as “grills” and the earlobe-stretching practice known as gauging.
“The district is having to respond to fads because they’ve become distracters or a safety hazard for those around them,” said Malcolm Turner, the district’s executive director of student services.
The nearby Irving, Grand Prairie and DeSoto districts also ban grills, and some also address gauging — the process of placing increasingly large items in the ears to stretch the lobes.

Good to see the Arlington Independent School District is giving a whole new generation of disrespectful young punks something to rage against.
